​Hi All,

I saw this story in Breaking Defense today but I found another source to post link to here since it may be more accessible (doesn't require a subscription). Neat stuff to shorten the supply chain, shorten Administrative Delay Time waiting for parts to be ordered/made/delivered to the fleet.'s%20Wasp%2Dclass,Commander%2C%20Naval%20Surface%20Force%20Atlantic.

Check out White House statement on AM Forward...

White House pushes AM Forward to help lower costs for American families by improving the competitiveness of America’s small-and-medium-sized manufacturers, creating and sustaining high-paying manufacturing jobs, and improving supply chain resilience through adoption of additive manufacturing.

​Has anyone been successful in getting access to JAMMEX?

I've been trying but haven't been able to get a list of external approvers to allow access. I've emailed [email protected] for assistance with no results thus far. Specifically looking for external Air Force Approvers for the amps roles.

The Air Force Rapid Sustainment Office's (RSO) inaugural Advanced Manufacturing Olympics — AMO for short — will be held virtually this October. AMO will bring together a wide spectrum of participants from military, businesses, and academia to share insights on advanced manufacturing including 3D printing, artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, and more.

Next week, the RSO will be hosting an Ask Me Anything to share exclusive information, and open the floor to any questions regarding the virtual event. If you're looking forward to learning more about the mission and purpose behind AMO, join Dr. Will Roper, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics on Thursday 6/25 at 12:30 pm EST.
